REMOVING AND INSTALLING OR REPLACING ALTERNATOR (N52K)

IMPORTANT: Aluminum-magnesium materials.

No steel screws/bolts may be used due to the threat of electrochemical corrosion.

A magnesium crankcase requires aluminum screws/bolts exclusively.

Aluminum screws/bolts must be replaced each time they are released.

The end faces of aluminum screws/bolts are painted blue for the purposes of reliable identification.

Jointing torque and angle of rotation must be observed without fail (risk of damage).

Necessary preliminary tasks:

Unlock plug (1) and remove.

Slacken nut (2).

Installation:

Tightening torque 12 31 1AZ.

Release screws and remove alternator (3).
